From a biography in the 1905 Bridgewater College (Elgin, Illinois) Yearbook:

D. L. Blakemore, born at Sangerville, Va., April 2, 1866, enrolled during the first session at Spring Creek. For two years he pursued his studies in the Classical course; and he now expresses his regrets that he was unable to continue his work another year and secure his degree. He taught in his home school during the session of '82; the next summer clerked for J. E. Graham & Bro., Staunton, Va. In the fall, when his parents moved to Washington, D. C., Mr. Blakemore accompanied them. For several years following, he was employed as real estate and insurance agent. In 1886 he entered the ministry, - "the one overpowering ambition of my life which I never lost sight of," are his words. After three years he was forced to discontinue his ministerial work because of a sever case of laryngitis. Then, for seven years, he was engaged in the produce commission business. In 1896 he was again permitted to take up his clerical work. H belongs to the Baltimore Conference, M. E. church, South. He has served on the Manassas Circuit, four years, and Fairfax Circuit, three years. At pressent he is pastor of the Epworth church, Washington, D. C. Of the churches of the Methodist denomination in the city, this one is second in size and importance.
